Description

Abstract: This study examines how method/site of administration impacts patients’ permissions for use of surplus tissues in research and for direct contact for research opportunities. We compared the response rate of patients to a self-administered questionnaire adjusted for age, race, ethnicity, and comorbidities through an EHR-patient portal and in person in clinics. Patients were somewhat more willing to contribute surplus specimens for research when asked in a clinical setting (odds ratio 1.21 (95% CI 1.11-1.312).

Learning Objective 1: To examine how method/site of administration impacts patients’ permissions for use of surplus tissues in research and for direct contact for research opportunities.
